Photoshop 2015.0.1 CORRUPTS Effects, Colors, text colors, opacity, images

Many bugs in the new photoshop 2015.0.1 - very frustrating.

At first I was in disbelief, I've used photoshop since version 2 back in the days of floppy disks before the concept of layers and I've never seen bugs like this.

Love some of the new features, like Artboards, and understand Adobe is still working out the kinks with the Library feature.

Using OSX 10.9.5 8GB Ram MacBook Pro - with only additional programs open being BBEdit and Chrome with 2 tabs. Memory Clean reports ~30% available ~80% after a reboot.

Restarted computer and only re-launched Photoshop only to find additionally layers missing opacity settings and layer effects.

Document has only 1 Artboard intended for Web at 72dpi ~100 layers ~40 folders ~12.5mbs

I have screenshots of 1-4 available, and will take screenshots of 5-6 if they happen again.

1) Layers losing Effects all together - This effects both embedded layers and layers linked to the library. Effects: Color Overlay, Stroke - Nothing fancy.

2) Many Layers losing Opacity adjustments

3) Many Text Layer losing color values defaulting to black, oddly simply clicking into the layer with the text tool restores the previous value.

4) An image layer lost approximately 25% of itself, as if deleted by a square marquee.

5) When deleting a background in a new file, portions of a different open file became visible in the deleted area of the active file.

6) Having both Photoshop and Illustrator open, when deleting portions of an active file in photoshop, portions of a file open in illustrator became slightly visible in Photoshop.

We haven't seen anything like that, or heard of document changes like that from other users.

Black and white squares are a symptom of a Camera Raw GPU issue (which messes up Photoshop afterward), and can be avoided by disabling GPU support in Camera Raw.

Are you using any third party plugins or extension panels? Have you tried running with those disabled?
